Ex-CIA master assassin Court Gentry has always prided himself on his ability to disappear at will, to fly below the radar and exist in the shadows - to survive as the near-mythical Gray Man. But when he takes revenge upon a former employer who betrayed him, he exposes himself to something he’s never had to face before.
A killer who is just like him.
Code-named Dead Eye, Russell Whitlock is a graduate of the same ultra-secret Autonomous Asset Program that trained and once controlled Gentry. But now, Whitlock is a free agent who has been directed to terminate his fellow student of death. He knows how his target thinks, how he moves, and how he kills. And he knows the best way to do the job is to make Gentry run for his life - right up until the moment Dead Eye finally ends it.

I've raced through the Gray Man series up to Dead Eye and am about to begin Back Blast I'm as fired up for this as I was the first audiobook.
The series is like Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp on growth hormones and amphetamines!! The only downside is that I've almost read them all.
Maybe best because the adrenaline surge while enmeshed in Cort's life is intense.
Great series Mark
The original Gray Man book had a lot of potential, but was marred by stereotypical characters, some ingrained homophobia, a too over the top main character, and an announcer-like read.
Dead Eye fixes these shortcomings and really brings out the potential of the Gray Man character in an action-adventure thriller that grabs the reader and holds on tight.
The narrator seems to have hit a much better tone in this outing. His declarative style is dialed back and his characterizations are excellent. He does have a bit of a Rod Serling sound and cadence, but it only distracted a few times as I felt like I was listening to a Twilight Zone episode. Oddly, there were several short audio inserts that sounded like they were recorded at a different time, possibly in a closet, with wildly different sound and volume.
Hard to pick one...
The Gray Man was much more believable this time around, but his psychotic protagonist was an equal match in the narrative. But then there's the pivotal Israeli operative too...
There were several memorable scenes, but I think I was most entertained by the chase through the bus and train station. Not wanting to give anything away.
No, like the author but this book and story took way to long to get to the point on every chapter.
Thoroughly enjoyed listening. This was my first in the series and I've already downloaded the first of the Gray Man series.
narrator was great and really got me into the story court gentry is becoming more and more developed as a character with each book in this series I can't wait for the next and hope snyder is on board for the narration!
7 out ten,this was one I
I hoped Ruth would of stayed longer
nothing for me
Mark Greeney is at the top of his game and the Grey Man series continues to be one of the best action series ever written.
I am a retired firefighter. I enjoy learning in all of it's forms. I'm new to audible but I love it since I can listen while I drive or work
The Grey Man books are well written and we'll performed. A lot of the books I've listened to were voices in the background that I had to work to keep up with. These books are in the center of my attention while I otherwise occupied.
This is my fourth Gray man book and it did not disappoint in the least. Mark Greaney has been able to come up with new and plausible plots for my favorite character and Jay Snyder kills it every time.
My next listen will be from another author and another genre as i don't want to go through the gray man series to quickly but as in the past I know I'm gonna be 'itching' to get to book 5 real soon.
